Tasting Notes

Details

Vanilla, toffee and apples on the nose with a layering and complexity that we’d expect from a Speyside malt of this age. Mouth-filling with intense notes of summer fruit, more vanilla and beautiful touch of sweet oak which combines with the softest and most subtle hint of peat smoke lasting onto the long, satisfying finish. A perfect example of a well-aged single cask from this unsung hero of Speyside.

Tamdhu Distillery

Tamdhu Single Malt Whiskey


Tamdhu Distillery was founded in Speyside in 1896 and in production the following year. Designed by Charles Doig this distillery was originally equipped with two stills that were increased to four in 1972 and then six in 1975 in order to cope with the ever increasing demand for Famous Grouse and Cutty Sark blends of scotch to which Tamdhu was a major contributor. When the nearby railway station closed in 1965 the ticket office was subsequently converted into the Tamdhu Distillery visitor. But the visitor centre closed and then the distillery itself in March 2010 and with it the last working Saladin malting boxes in Scotland. A year later and Ian Macleod Distillers purchased Tamdhu Distillery and re-opened it in 2012. Single malts include Tamdhu 10 Year Old and Batch Strength.
